1  Gelli Print Envelopes and Matching Notecards in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by kwality570 on: April 15, 2015 07:53:35 AM
When I saw the Gelli Plate on Pinterest, I just knew I had to have one.  It's a reusable gelatin like "plate" that you add paint and stencils to and get amazing and detailed prints like this:

I bought one for myself for a present. Two years and lots of fun Gelli printing later, I had a lot of prints but couldn't think of a way to use them. Along came an Envelope Punch Board and the rest is history. I made the envelopes and used the left over trimmed scraps to add a little bit of matching decoration to the cards inside like this:

These are the lots of envelopes and matching cards that I made to offer for the Spring Shop the Swap.

If you're looking for a way to put your Gelli prints to use or an excuse to buy a Gelli plate, I think these are reason enough. Smiley

Shipping some stencils to LeapFeetFirst. I'll be shipping clear ones, but they won't photograph.  Just looks like a pile o' plastic. Smiley

I am located in Michigan in the US.  I am in a non-smoking home but have one beautiful, hairy dog.

NEW! Perpetual Monster Calendar - Several Available - 3 pts each
A fun calendar that will never expire!  A different design on each number and a different monster on each day and each month.  Simply flip to the correct day and see a different combination. Approximately 4" tall.

NEW!  Gelli Print Notecards - 1 pt. for a set of 5 - Claim by set name
All of these envelopes and note cards are one of a kind.  They were created from Gelli prints using acrylic paints.  Colors are a bit more vibrant than they appear in the photos.  Some have metallic paint for a little bit of shimmer. Each envelope contains a notecard with a coordinating stripe like this:

Set 1

Set 2

Set 3

Set 5

Set 6

6.5" Woodburned Blue Monster Painting - 1.5 pts
Monster woodburned on a wooden circle and painted with pearlescent acrylic paints. Pop tab glued to back for hanging.

10" Woodburned Orange Monster Painting - 2 pts each
Woodburned monster on a wooden circle and painted with pearlescent acrylic paints.  Difficult to photograph the gleam, but the paints are metallic. Pop tab glued to back for hanging.

Monster Notebooks - 1.5 pts each 1 pt each!
Notebooks adorned with cute monsters drawn and colored with Prismacolor colored pencils.  Papers inside are all assorted project life cards for color and variety. Perfect for small notes. Each are 3" wide and 4" tall.

example of papers on inside:





"Needlecraft" Magazines - 0.25 pts. each
These are all needlecraft magazines from the 1920s and 1930s.  You will receive a random issue if purchased.  They aren't in perfect condition (some writing on the covers and stains), but are great for photos and advertisements inside.

Kwality Stencils - 0.25 pts each or 5 for 1 pt
These stencils were all designed by me and cut on my Silhouette machine.  They aren't as thick as stencils you'd purchase in a store; they're about as thick as a transparency or a bit thinner.  Great for papercrafting, mixed media or for using on a Gelli Plate. I've taken photos of my old stencils that are very "loved" and covered with paint so the design shows up.  You will get new, clear stencils unless you would like my paint crusted versions (just let me know if you do).

  Flower - you will get three
Circles - Set of 5 nesting circles
Grouped Rings
Little Cs

I used a bunch of gelli prints for the background and cut them up and collaged them together to make the background for the lotus.  It's really difficult to photograph for sure, but the color changes because I used metallic color shifting paper for the lotus and the bottom part.  I just wanted to do something non-monster for a change. Smiley

I received this amazing artwork from wiccadwitch.  Its the second I've received in a 4x6 art swap and I'm elated.  I couldn't have asked for a more beautiful piece!!!  I'll display it next to the other one. Smiley
